  • Telomeres, Diet and Human Disease

    Advances and Therapeutic Opportunities

    Edited by Amelia Marti, Guillermo Zalba

    The maintenance of telomeres—repetitive sequences at the end of chromosome—is essential to health. Dysfunction in telomere maintenance pathways plays a role in aging, cancer, atherosclerosis and other diseases. This has led to telomere maintenance as a prime target for patient therapies. This book…
